Taking the Linux Foundation exam
March 20, 2019.
Being a long time Linux user and developing software in such environments, I appreciate the tools and techniques that I learned throughout the years. They make me more efficient and productive in most of the phases during software development. And as you gain more experience, you look out and learn better ways to accomplish things and add it into your toolbox. I don’t forget the phrase from the famous The Pragmatic Programmer book.
Tools amplify your talent. The better your tools, and the better you know how to use them, the more productive you can be.
You might search for tips to a problem on the internet or you can proactively follow some resources like blogs, Q&A sites or tech magazines to master your skills in a domain. But from my perspective, this strategy is slow. On one hand, it’s true that information is available out there on the internet, however, it’s scattered all around. It’s not easy to find a decent content - some resources are inaccurate, weak or in too much detail which might cause to lose your motivation in the subject. I am strongly of the opinion that finding and following a good resource that keeps you focused matters and it’s a fast track to master your skills.
One of my goals for 2019 is to take the Linux Foundation Certified Sysadmin certificate which is organized by The Linux Foundation. At the moment, I am going through the course materials and taking notes as I go through the chapters. Here, I am sharing my notes on github.com/karakays/lfcs.
